Poisonous pleasures enthrall our minds
Pleasures of beauty take our time
Trick the good into a crimson act.
See and savour Christ’s infinite beauty
Infinite value bathed in radiant glory
Value of suffering in a crimson act.
Just and good is the imprint of nature
Imprint of God served with divine value
His life a ransom in a crimson act.
Christ is given in this act of grace
Act of dying for this fallen race
Supreme honour in a crimson act.
